As the afternoon wore on, we stopped to watch the sky begin to turn the colors of sunset as well as to watch and photograph a group of egrets when this little character showed up on the scene! Much to our surprise and delight, a small fox began to wonder down the road toward us. Not knowing whether the animal was healthy or perhaps a sick one, we made sure we were close enough to the vehicle to make a hasty retreat if necessary. I think the fox was just as curious and unsure as we, as it kept coming forward and then retreating. We ultimately decided that it really wanted to get past us, so we moved on down the road to see what else we could spot before darkness set in.
